Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's curator insight, June 1, 10:57 PM

Reading is one of the basic literacy skills we learn from the first years of our schooling.As we grow up this skill develops and takes many forms. It actually stays with us for the rest of our life. And like any other skill, the more you work on it the better it gets. That is why we have now great writers it is because they were once great readers.

"Engaging kids in creative video productions allows them to develop communication skills and enhances their technical know-how. It also gives them an avenue through which they can practice multimodal expressions and present information in numerous ways.This multimodality in communicating information does not only help students understand topics much better and at a deeper level but is also an elemental feature of the 21st century learning."

Do You Love Science? [infographic]

Do You Love Science? [infographic] | Education Matters - (tech and non-tech) | Scoop.it
Every time I am asked anything about science, all I can think of are beakers and Bunsen burners and am quick to deny my interest in the subject matter. Well, this infographic is out to change this backward thinking. As it turns out, I actually do love science! Why? Because I love outer space, animals, people, cooking, and volcanoes! Little did I know that all these loves of mine fall under science education. Now when someone talks to me about science I will think along the lines of astrologer, ornithologist, nutritionist, seismologist, or population ecologist!
